/me been wandering around something similar long time ago...
KDE 4.0.0 is a piece of software and it is a container of pieces of
software, which is the same kind of KDE4... but then the set of all
possible sets is contained in itself? :) Can't remember which famous
mathematician had a hard time defining this problem, I think it was
about first and second order logic, and in the end if you can put a
container in itself then the logical results take a while to be
computed... like forever :)
